Hi Communtiy,


during the last days I had to work a lot with backups.

I recognized that the bottle neck is always gzip, because it only utilize one single core.

Additinally I recognized while gzip is utilizing one thread by 100% it is impacting other processes.


Question: There are already different zip tools in the unix universe supporting multiple threads. Are there plans to implement a multithread zip tool into GAIA and adding its functionallity to gaiabackup and scripts like this?


Thanks in advance.
